The London Fashion Week was opened by London-based women’s wear designer whose digital presentation lounge has opened its doors at the Ice Tank Studios with Guynel AW16 presentation. The drinks were served from 10 am, shall I say more.
With a snow-covered landscape as the backdrop, the digital presentation featured an all-female marching army wearing Gyunel’s surreal and ethereal trademark prints.
Ikon got a close look at the intricate pieces from Gyunel’s AW16 collection. This season, which marks Gyunel’s 7th Ready-to-Wear collection, is an ode to female Soviet soldiers. It echoes in the structured dresses and military-inspired pencil skirts. The collection also salutes the 70s with polo-necks and flared tailored trousers and includes a rich and wintery palette of burnt orange, burgundy, teal and light greys. Consistent with the collection’s military theme, accessories include military-style hats and buckled boots, both of which are handcrafted in Italy.
The main highlights of the range, to me, are the burgundy jackets and intricately textured sweatshirts paired with leather leggings.
Gyunel hails from Azerbaijan and has enjoyed a successful career as an artist before training at both London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins. And if you feel like wrapping up Guynel style in wither, the stockists include Harvey Nichols and Wolf and Badger in Mayfair.
As to the team Ikon, we are very much looking forward to Guynel presentation in Cannes.
